An elongated calcite specimen with curiously irregular shape and matte, dark grey to black color (probably goethite inclusions; actual color is darker than my lousy photos suggest). The colorless material is naturally corroded quartz. Mindat has 458 photos of calcite from Santa Eulalia with a wide variety of forms and colors, but nothing like this oddball.
